Take Pride 1.75" x 5.75" ink, gouache, stonehenge paperHere's my contribution to this year's Gallery 101 Frames event. They started tackling the seven deadly sins last year so sin #2 is Pride. I decided to show you my piece in all manner of dress, culminating with a very prideful large solid dark wood frame. Talk about showy, yet tasteful.
Here's the info...

On Saturday, December 5th, 2009, Gallery 101 will host the second of seven years of THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS. Each year artists interpret a different deadly sin. This year, G101 invited artists to make art that engages with the boldest sin in the bunch: PRIDE. We certainly want to show our PRIDE, and why not? This year, Gallery 101 is celebrating its 30th Anniversary of supporting Ottawa’s arts community, and we feel the need to brag, to boast, and to get a little narcissistic.
But that’s not the only way we are spicing it up. Other sinfully delightful features of this year’s event will be the best performance art, arrogant door prizes (including some very glorious big ticket items), and grand appetizers, all set to some choice tunes by the sauciest djs in a PRIDE-inspired setting. So come on out and show us you have PRIDE (for the arts) in Ottawa, indulge in a night of arts and culture, and support your local non-profit artist-run centre.
Proceeds from the auction help Gallery 101 maintain its services to artists and the community. This event is supported and made possible by our local artists, volunteers and friends.
